Pakistan has become an attractive emerging wind market. With a sizable share of over 1200 MW, the market is moving from initial development towards maturity. The market is well on its way to install 400 MW of wind power during the current year which is a record in the country. Against that backdrop, Ernest & Young has ranked Pakistan as 26th most attractive renewable energy market in the world. The Government of Pakistan is organising auctions for 1200 MW of renewable energy soon. The draft new policy talks about a share of 20% for renewables in the energy mix of Pakistan in the near future.
Energy experts have stressed the need to implement 18th constitutional amendment for harnessing renewable energy resources to meet growing energy needs in Pakistan without aggravating climate change concerns. They were speaking at the “National Renewable Energy Dialogue” organised by the World Wind Energy Association (WWEA) in collaboration with Heinrich Boell Stiftung (HBS) here on Wednesday.
The competition is aimed to find the best innovative ideas and startups in the area of Energy and Environment, specifically in the renewable energy, waste management, and agriculture & forestry sectors.
